Dr. Henry Liddell in the Home Magaxln?.
The country known to English-speaking
folk as Thibet boars a very different name
among its own people. It is called Bod. or
Bod-yul, “the country of Bod.” The name
Rod probably refers to Buddha. Thibet

Northern Buddhism, in coniradisUnction

Though ostensibly Buddhists, the people

and by Shamanism or spirit worship."
Shamanism is the dominant cult of Mon

Thibet is regarded by students of the oc

fakirs, who sre Mohammedans, or of the
Sanyahis or Yogis, who are Brahmins, but
they are usually terrible and revo 'ing. A
Thibetan Bokt. who had wandered from
his native land and penetrated as far as
Benares, gave an exhibition of his wonder
ful powers in one of the vast temples of
the holy city a few* years ago. He w.s
accompanied and assisted by a mongrel
crowd of half-human compatrio:*. The ex
hibition promised by the wonderful magi
cian was truly an astound.r.g one. He
proposed, in view of oil beholders, to rip
up his abdomen, remove a handful of in
testines. display them to the spectators
and then replace them again and heal up
the wound by n few magi cad passes, leav
ing no vestige of the damage inflicted.

Needless to say such exhibitions arc not

When the hour cf noon arrived the lama
appeared arid took his seat before the
raised ahar on which candies had been
lighted. Before him was a radiant image
of the sun. and on either side of tho altar
were grim idols which had been placed
there by the attendants.
The luma was in person a small, spare
man. with fixed, glittering eyes, an ema
ciated frame and an Immense mass of iong
black hair, which floated over his shoul
ders Ho appeared altogether like a walk
ing corpse, in whose head two biasing
rives had been lighted, which gleamed in
unnatural lu-i-r through his long fl.mon.i
shaped ryes. He was about forty years of
age. and report alleged that he had al
r. ~lv s me four times previously perform
i i the gretit sacrificial act he was now
about to repeat.
From the moment this skeleton figure
had Mkctt : seat the sever.iy fakirs who
surrounded him in a semi-clr.le began to
swat their bodies back and forth, singing
meanwhile a loud, monotonous chant In
rhythm with their movements. In a few
minutes the gesticulations of the fakirs tr
creased almost to frenry They tossed
their arm- on high, bent their bo-diee to
earth, now forward, now backward, now
swung them around as if thrown by the
hands of others. Meantime their monoto
